GREENWOOD, Mo. – Local police are investigating a stabbing after a disturbance call at a home.
What we know at this point — there was a disturbance call to a home around 6:30 p.m. Police say at this point, it doesn’t appear the parties involved know each other.
It happened on 16th Avenue South.
Police were still talking to potential witnesses and scouring the front lawn and inside the home for evidence when our FOX 4 crew arrived around 9 p.m. on Saturday.
Police Sgt. Michael Hurt says they aren’t quite sure what unfolded.
He says two people were staying at the home at the time, but neither of them were stabbed. Instead, the victim is a male who was stabbed by a kitchen knife while inside the home. Police say that victim does not live there.
He was taken to a local hospital. No word on his injuries.
Hurt says the suspect is in custody. He is an adult male, and he was not injured.
Police also say a car parked in front of the home had its tires slashed, and they’re looking for any connection between the two incidents.
